A Day Zero Project goal of P.J.’s has been completed!
Goal completed: Design and create a t-shirt for HooHaa Brewing and submit on TeeSpring (and sell 10)
Date completed: January 25, 2015
Description: The goal was to design a logo and make a t-shirt via TeeSpring and set a goal of 10 for my home brew “company.” Obviously, I’m not a real brewery or anything, but I thought it would be a lot of fun to do.
Why I wanted to do it: Why not? I love having my own shirt designs made. I’ve done it before on small runs of things (print on demand is a wonderful thing). And it’s always cool to see a design on a shirt. I had a few people, too, say I should get some shirts made with the “brewery” name on it, so I figured why not?
How I did it: I had worked on a mini design for custom bottle caps I had made, so I used the same idea for the t-shirt logo. I added a few things, if I remember right, to the shirt. I then just had to select the items (t-shirt/sweatshirt) and colors to put it out there. I set the goal at 10 to make it easier to be done and I shrunk the prices to make it easier for people to buy (I didn’t need profit … I just wanted to see campaign succeed). In the end, I sold 10 of the shirts/sweatshirts, which was quite cool. And now I have a t-shirt and sweatshirt with my “brewery” logo!
About P.J.’s Day Zero Project: Day Zero is a project where people come up with 101 things to do over 1001 days. I started the project on August 1, 2014 with an anticipated finish date of April 28, 2017. Goals will not be revealed until they are completed. A private list is at the Day Zero website and the list will be made public upon completion of the project. It’s my thoughts that if things are kept private, should I not do them, change or find a way around it, I’d only be cheating myself.
